Disability Support Services
Deaf or Hearing Impairments
Students requesting accommodations on the basis of deafness or hearing loss must provide documentation from the appropriate clinical professional consisting of:
- An audiological evaluation and/or audiogram.
- A narrative interpretation of the functional implications of the diagnostic data and hearing aid evaluation, when appropriate.
- Suggestions as to how the functionally limiting manifestations of the disabling condition(s) may be accommodated. *
- All reports must be in narrative form, typed, and signed by the appropriate clinical professional. Chart or clinic notes are not acceptable as documentation.
*A history of accommodations does not in itself warrant the provision of similar accommodations at UNA. The final determination of eligibility for services rests with the University of North Alabama.
